Gordon Grimes of Bernstein Shur

Program: 
Date: 
Sunday, June 12, 2011 - 10:00pm

Gordon Grimes is a member of Bernstein Shur’s Energy Practice Group. He has spent more than 30 years representing the interests of private energy generators, banks, contractors and other entities in the power-generation industry.

He played a lead role in establishing Central Maine Power’s “avoided cost” -- the price the utility would pay to private electrical generators -- in the early 1980s at the Maine Public Utilities Commission. He then represented numerous clients that developed or financed private energy projects in Maine, and in the process developed an extensive knowledge of the power industry. He continues to represent many private electric generators and related interests throughout Maine and in other states and foreign countries.

His practice includes dispute resolution, including mediation, arbitration, administrative hearings, and litigation related to all aspects of the power industry. For example, from 1989 to 1991, he served as lead counsel in nearly full-time arbitration (115 hearing days) against General Electric on waste-to-energy plant construction and design issues, obtaining an $11.5 million cash award and relief from a further $6 million debt -- then one of the largest litigated recoveries in a construction dispute in Maine’s history.

Join us this Sunday as we talk to Gordon Grimes of Bernstein Shur about the legal and regulatory challenges and opportunities for hydro and wind energy.

In the spirit of full disclosure, host Steve D'Agostino does public-relations work for Bernstein Shur.
